I enjoyed the author's depiction of Medeival life, which was very well-researched and focused on a region I wasn't very informed about. I was frustrated by the romance that is the central drama of the story. It reminded me of Jane Eyre, but Kristen Lavransdatter isn't as tough or resilient a character as Jane, and Kristen's object of affection doesn't have as many good qualities as Jane's did. I felt like the match Kristen wanted would inevitably lead to complete misery. In this story the final note isn't tragic, but the potential is there.

Novel words I read in this book:
palatinate - A territory administered on behalf of a king or emperor by a count.
lendermand - a non-hereditary title granted by a king, with holdings, in exchange for fixed services (and sometimes additional services during wartime). Sometimes the title-holder would be responsible for law enforcement, maintaining roads/bridges (including preventing brigandage), or keeping a forest poacher-free.
sponson - a projection on the side of a boat, ship, or seaplane.
bajabers - bejesus
saeter - a Scandanavian mountain
beck - brook
pillion - side seat or passenger seat
chid - chided
wadmal - coarse, dense, usually undyed wool fabric
bilberries - a small dark blue edible berry, common in Northern Europe
stoup - basin, bowl, or chalice
latchet - a narrow thong or lace for fastening a shoe or sandal.
shrift - confession to a priest
shaw - a thick patch of plants
spital - A charitable house to receive and care for sick people, later distinguished from a hospital as being especially for those of a low class or meagre financial means.
guerdon - reward
lath - a flat piece of wood
trow - believe or think
purblind - partly blind
tarn - lake
wot - (1st & 3rd singular present form of "wit"), meaning to know, to learn, or to realize
shoon - shoes
pard - A mythological beast that when mated with a lion produced leopards.
byre - cowshed ( )

[February, 2018] Last reading was in the fall of 2015, so this is my fourth read-through. I would have guessed it was more recent than that, because this story stays with me all the time. Raised my rating to five stars! It's steadily climbed over the last seven years.

[Read for the second time in March, 2014] Definitely enjoyed this much more three years later. Raised my rating from 3 to 4 stars. The Nunnally translation is superior, as I'd expected. Easily one of the most wonderful works of historical fiction I have read, and the trilogy as a whole is one of my all-time favorites.

[March, 2011] Considering the reviews I'd read and how much I often enjoy historical epic, I did not get nearly as invested in this story as I had hoped. I think it could have had a lot to do with the translation; if I decide to read the remainder of the trilogy, I'll try to get my hands on the Penguin edition translated by Nunnally. Even though I was not greatly enamored of Kristin's and Erlend's characters, it was interesting to read a story set in medieval Norway. ( )

Historical fiction often falls flat by trying to portray a modern-day woman with a 21st century mindset in a long ago setting. Undsets Nobel prize winning tale of a 14th century girl manages to completely avoid this, and is a pretty compulsive read. Kristin starts out as a child on a middle class estate; the much-loved daughter of a handsome, good hearted landowner and his "heavy of mood" wife. The countryside, village life and the Catholic church form the backdrop to their story. But this is also a harsh world of violence and disease...
When she is sent away to spend a year at a convent, the (betrothed) Kristin encounters the dashing Erlund. But this is no Romeo and Juliet story, as the older man already has a commonlaw wife and two illegitimate children at his homestead of Husaby...
Extremely well written and gripping. ( )

"I've done many things that I thought I would never dare to do because they were sins. But I didn't realize then that the consequence of sin is that you have to trample on other people."

On the surface this story can seem a bit melodramatic, but it's really a very deep book. It's beautifully written, but it's heartbreaking as well. The descriptions are on point. It follows Kristin from a child to her wedding to Erland. I love the Catholicism of it. This culture of Medieval Norway is very Catholic, but still steeped in paganism. They praise God, yet utter curses. Pray to the Saints, but believe in Fae. They believe in trusting God's will for them, but they are also superstitious. Many priests are good, but Undset does not hide the fact that there are evil ones as well, and even the good ones are shown to have sinned and have flaws. The people do not expect them to be perfect. They realize that they are human. This is the culture she grows up in. She is seduced by a much older man, when she is a teenager, who had been excommunicated for adultery, and still has his mistress live with him off and on. This sin causes great trouble in her life. As soon as she gave into him she felt she was his possession, and not in an entirely romantic way. She is passionate about him, but she also feels trapped. It takes her peace away, leads to more sin, and she must struggle with her guilt and the consequences. She still wants to be right with God and the Church, but she wants Erland, and she has her pride. She lies, and hides her sins, and prolongs them until she gets her way. She goes about it backwards. Instead of confessing, and doing things above board first, and then getting married to Erland. She hides, and works sneakily, she wants to marry him first and then deal with her sin, but it festers, and more people are hurt in the process. There is so much going on in this novel, and so many ways to look at it, but I think it's primarily about the struggle between sin and grace, hatred and love, forgiveness and resentment. This book ends on her and Erland's wedding night, but there is a sense if foreboding that their marriage will not be a happy one. I will be reading book 2 for my next category.

"I've done many things that I thought I would never dare to do because they were sins. But I didn't realize then that the consequence of sin is that you have to trample on other people."
